Expectation Are Huge : The 2020 BMW M2 CS

Since the news of the 2020 BMW M2 CS first broke cover, it’s been compared to the already legendary BMW 1M.

It is easy to understand why the soon to be released 2020 BMW M2 CS is being touted as the successor to the wildly incredible BMW 1M from the early 2010s. The M2 CS has all the makings of another great compact BMW sports car.

The 2020 BMW M2 CS will features a 450-horsepower version of the S55 turbocharged 3.0-litre inline-6-cylinder engine. All this power will have, at least its expected, less weight to lug around than the current “regular” M2. Physically, the M2 CS will sport a carbon fibre bonnet, a unique roof panel also made of carbon fibre, and all kinds of other carbon fibre bits including the front splitter, rear spoiler and diffuser as well as side mirrors.

The cabin is loaded with the stuff too including the center console. Alcantara will also be prominent throughout the cabin including the steering wheel and let’s not for the  M Competition seats borrowed from the M4 CS.

Attached to the S55 will be either a 6-speed manual or 7-speed dual-clutch transmission. Other mechanical improvements will be a modified M Sport exhaust system, an Adaptive M suspension, M Sport brakes with ceramic units available as an option.

As far as we’re concerned, no matter what BMW does to the M2 to make it faster, it’ll never ever match the glorious, analogue and driver-centric 1M. Most recent BMW M cars have completely missed the point of what it is to be an “M” car. The current M2 however is the closest of the lot at the moment. Despite this, we stand by our thoughts.

The 2020 BMW M2 CS is expected to go live at this November’s 2019 Los Angeles Auto Show. Production numbers will be in the low 2,000s.
